How Much do MagicBands Cost?
As I mentioned above, anyone staying at one of the Disney World Resort hotels was eligible to receive a complimentary (free) MagicBand. It has been announced that this longstanding policy is about to change at the end of 2020.
If your arrival date is on or before December 31, 2020, you will still receive free MagicBands for every member of your party. However, Magicbands will no longer be provided on a complimentary basis for anyone with check-in reservations on January 1, 2021, and beyond.
This news is a bit disappointing but not all is lost. You can still use MagicBands in the park and you can still purchase your MagicBand online or at select retail locations.
And another good thing: MagicBands are quite affordable. They will cost you between $15 to $35 – depending on which model you choose.
The basic MagicBands are a solid color. You can choose between 8 different colors and they are priced at just $14.99 each.
The customizable MagicBands are brightly-colored with lively graphics of your favorite Disney characters. The graphical MagicBands cost between $24.99 and $34.99, which is more than the solid MagicBands but well worth it in my opinion.
Where Can you Buy MagicBands?
Guests can purchase their MagicBands via any one of the following”
- Online via the shopDisney website
- Walt Disney World theme park retail locations
- Walt Disney World Resort hotel retail locations
- At a select number of Disney Springs retail locations
- Other participating merchandise and retail locations
After you’ve received your Magic Band, you can now link your MagicBand or theme park ticket to your Disney account
